Fannie Mae has launched an interactive video simulation tool to inform struggling homeowners about their options to avoid foreclosure.

Called WaysHome, the tool is part of KnowYourOptions.com, a new consumer site Fannie Mae set up for homeowners who are underwater or having trouble paying their bills or mortgage payments.

"In 2011, an estimated 4 million homes will be at imminent risk of foreclosure. As we enter a new year, the company is expanding its efforts to help struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure — WaysHome is an innovative tool to help achieve this goal," said Jeff Hayward, Fannie Mae’s senior vice president, in a statement.
